The Kings of England, from William the Conqueror to George III
London: William Darton, 1821. 16mo. (36) pp. Illustrated with thirty-three wood engraved portraits of English monarchs. Includes George III's 1820 death date, hence the estimate on the date of publication. Unrecorded variant of Darton's British Soverigns (H102), which bears a title similar to that of Robert Dodsley's earlier historical survey (G259). The present title bears Darton's 58, Holborn Hill address, where he was active between 1817 and 1823. Minor soiling to publisher's printed wrappers. Overall, a near fine copy of a rare chapbook, known only in two institutional copies. (Not in Darton).
